    can you root without a pc?

    I'm new to the concept of rooting my phone. I read up a bit on it and would like to give it a shot. My problem is I'm at work without a pc I can use to download the zip file. Sorry if this is dumb, but is there a way to root without plugging into my pc?

    Yes, all it requires is that you download the update.zip on to your sd card from the browser on your phone then use astro file manager to move it to the root of your sd card then follow the rest of the steps

    Last question. On the root tutorials, I followed the link for the zip file and it says the file doesn't exist anymore. Is there somewhere else that has it?

    4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download droid-superuser_update.zip
    You just have to use astro to change the name of the file
